watson leather goods are crafted in the highest quality skins from European tanneries. because these leathers are natural and unique, any tonal variations, marks or veins are natural features and should not be considered as imperfections. to ensure that your leather good ages beautifully, watson recommends you: -protect it from humidity; avoid contact with liquids, hand creams, hand sanitizer, makeup, and perfumes. should your leather good come in contact with any of these, make sure to dab dry with a non-fluffy, light-colored, absorbent cloth. -avoid over-exposure to direct lighting/sunlight and keep it away from sources of heat. -do not rub it against coarse or abrasive surfaces.
